Subjectso, I'm moving to France Reply to this message

It's Toulouse, and it's going to be for at least one year.

Anyone of you knows what's good to see/do/eat in Toulouse and the Midi-Pyrenees area? newsdee?

GF is coming along, so no, the asses of french chicks are not an option :D

I'll miss the family, friends, the sea, good pasta.
I won't miss Berlusconi (there's Sarko), my 12h/day job here, my salary.

The boring story: last year a small business in Toulouse was acquired by my company for their know-how, and I asked to go and learn something from them, while teaching them our stuff. Nothing happens because a guy with more experience is sent there (nothing to object). One year later the guy quits for a golden position, the boss pops up and asks if I still want to go, he's sending the fiancee along (she works in the same company).

Whatever happens, it's gonna be fun: I always wanted to live abroad and know a new culture. Integration is not going to happen in a second, but I'm an open guy and the people in Toulouse seem to be the same.

Wish me good luck!

Hey man, we'll still be here at CA for you. Good luck with the move, the GF, and the drinking!

I hope your girl will keep on shaving her armpits even though you guys will be in france haha. Have you learned the language? Pro tip: if a guys tells you "sale enfoiré de connard de merde, tu piges rien de ce que je dis foutu immigré à la con" with a smile, you can hit him in the balls.

I'd love for an opportunity to work (even if for a while) in Europe. The bullshit in my country pisses me off, specially in an election year as this.

All work and no play makes me..., well, you know the rest.

Too bad I'm not living in France right now, or I would jump into a train to visit the area and say hi.

I've only been in passing to Tolouse on my way to Spain, but I can tell you the Toulouse sausages are famous. It goes well with the Cassoulet (bean stew).

People are supposed to be nicer than in Paris (being a "Parigot" myself I only know what people from the South keep saying). In any case, Bordaux is not too far so it should be easy to get the traditional combo of Wine, baguette, cheese and salami and go on a picnic.

As for spots, did a quick search and found there are a few churches (probably not as impressive as the Vatican ones) and also a Space Museum with a few life-size Ariane rockets.
